$100...

Just wondering...

If you had $100(give or take $10) to spend on one thing to upgrade your bike, what would it be. The rules are:

The money cant be split up
It must be spent on one component/part
It has to be an upgrade(improvement) to the bike

Ha! Im not asking for me. Just wondering what people would do. $100 could buy you a great improvement making the bike more fun to ride, or just some bike bling making it look better. Just seeing which way folks would go.

tubeless (if not already).  If already tubeless, $100 worth of gels, bloks, bananas, whatever else to keep riding a lot!

1) the Twinsdad recommended Schwalbe tire combo

2) carbon handlebar you get for a deal 

3) new saddle

4) better pedals

5) convert to $1 bills to "make it rain" after an awesome ride
